"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

definitely not for us « Previous | |Next »
June 5, 2003

Judging by this report Tony Blair has big problems with Europe. Britain, after all is an island nation, which one had an empire and fought many a long war with the nations of Continental Europe. It seems the British have no time for the European Union or European integration.

And probably for good reason. European integration is seen as a move towards a centralised superstate with little in the way of substantive checks and balances to the executive in terms of judiciary, legislature, or regional states. It seems as if federalism has been sidelined in the new draft constitution.
